Because of the School’s small size and exclusive focus on undergraduate education, students have access to a variety of performance opportunities and are valued contributors and participants from the start of the first year at DePauw. The School’s performance calendar, which offers over 200 events annually, features students in solo recitals, chamber music and ensemble concerts, opera and musical theatre productions. Domestic and international concert tours, competitions, and master classes with renowned guest artists from around the world, present additional performing opportunities.
